Costs and insurance for breast cancer treatment

Treatment for breast cancer is covered by health insurance. However, we have learned from experience that there may in certain cases be problems with cost coverage by the insurance company, which may reject claims for subsequent reconstructive procedures or symmetrisation surgery on the opposite breast, with the argument that it is a purely cosmetic treatment. Our doctors will of course advocate for you in these cases.

Please note that the Pyramid Clinic does not have a general medical department, so for any inpatient treatments you will require supplementary private or semi-private hospital insurance if all treatment costs should be borne by the insurance company. Patients with general insurance can also be treated by us with an upgrade, which we calculate individually.
